“The only reason for time is so that everything doesn’t happen at once” – Albert Einstein
Time does seem to be highly commented on and I will venture that most of the comments that I hear are something like: ‘time is going so fast’, ‘I can not believe it is the end of the day, Friday, a new year already”, and ‘I am so busy’.
How is it that we collectively seem to be consistently crazy busy with not enough time . . . to get it all done? Does this state of being allow us to be enjoying our days or stress us out? And, can we positively affirm our way out of this situation?
Can we add time to our day as was once suggested to me? Or is it as her partner countered and the reality is a day is 24 hours?
I believe both . . .
There truly are just 24 hours in a day. But, we can make the day more if we find our personal ways to add extra time. This concept is individual in that we must look for what will make a difference in our perception of our day. For me, right now, it is creating a doable to do list, making a conscious effort to be present in the moment, being positive about my things to do and my accomplishments and creating some me time. This I feel is my extra time! Still a work in progress ; )
Einstein’s theory that time is relative led to his belief that it speeds up or slows down depending on how fast one thing is moving relative to something else.
So, perhaps if I slow down and practice conscious appreciation of the time I have then those around me will also have some extra time ; )
